Something New

Hi friends.  I'm coming to you with something totally new for me - an art journal page.  My online friend, Marsha, inspired me to start art journaling.  It's a more vulnerable feeling for me to share this than it is to share a card.  But I tell you I am absolutely loving art journaling.  I can't get enough of it. 

This page is about my "word" for 2014.  My word is "Determined".  I'm determined to make progress in a number of areas of my life, but exercise is one of the biggies and that is what I had in mind when I made this page.  And btw, I'm happy to report that I have been exercising faithfully so far in 2014.


Challenges I'm entering:

Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes

Blessings:
  • Discovering art journaling.
  • Blueberries
  • Safety for my mom when she found herself in a bad situation on slippery roads.
Have a joy-filled day!!!

Inky hugs!
Shelly

This page inspired me. I have some pages prepared with Gesso but haven't gone any farther. I am drawn. The colors and dictionary definition of determination are great. Thank you for dropping by and sharing your inspirational art with us today.
I pray that bountiful Blessings come your way,

Uh-oh! After reading your post, I hear my treadmill calling... Think I could lose 30 lbs. in time for our Disney trip next month? Don't answer that...

This is a lovely art journal page. So great that you've decided to start art journaling. I only started last year and I feel like you - can't get enough of it now. Thanks for your comment on my heart card. I found Word Art Wednesday through your blog!

Your page is beautiful and it is a wonderful word to choose too. I wish I could be as 'determined' about exercise - well done for sticking to it!
